YouTuber Bithead1000 took it upon himself to complete an unusual project: build a custom Nintendo 64 chassis out of metal, put the guts of a real Nintendo 64 inside it, and then rig it all to shoot geysers of fire. He, uh, succeeded with flying colors too. In a time-lapsed yet still lengthy video, he demonstrates the creation of this metal Nintendo 64 from start to finish, demonstrating an awesome skill set that I can barely wrap my head around.
As you can see if you watch the video, Bithead1000 even includes flourishes beyond the brutal death flame. You can admire how he has designed a three-dimensional Nintendo 64 logo that physically rotates, a very nice touch! The innards glow red as well.
When the metal Nintendo 64 is not shooting fire, it plays games like Banjo-Kazooie without issue, but why stop there? The YouTuber takes a lighter to the console for some “candlelight” while he plays Banjo.
Basically, this metal Nintendo 64 is the console that you would expect the devil to be playing. I’m not sure if he would be playing Banjo-Kazooie, but close enough. Between this and that behemoth of a Dragon Quest cosplayer, this has been a pleasantly random news day, huh?
